Greases are preferable in cases where oils cannot be used because grease stays in place, forming a 'protective shield'. There are many different technologies available for use under different circumstances. Often trucks and buses can be subject to a challenging environment such as a heavy load, dirt and water where critical parts can only be protected by a grease layer.
Castrol’s choice of greases range from multipurpose to the special greases with Castrol technology providing outstanding protection and longer component life, under demanding conditions, and keeping your vehicle on the road longer.
Designed for plain and roller bearing applications operating at temperatures beyond the limits of conventional Lithium greases.
The excellent stability, load carrying and high temperature performance of Castrol Premium Heavy Duty make it particularly suitable for use in wheel bearings of vehicles operating at high speeds over long distances, or where prolonged heavy braking is likely to give higher than normal hub temperatures.
Premium Heavy Duty is Castrol’s primary recommendation for vehicles operating with disc brakes. It is also recommended for general purpose greasing on a wide range of industrial plant, particularly if operating under conditions of high load and temperature.
Remove old grease from the bearing or cavity before a new product is applied.
Heavy duty grease combining molybdenum disulphide with extreme pressure additives.
For use where shock load protection is required for automotive ball joints and constant velocity joints.
Multipurpose lithium complex grease which has special properties in wet environments.
Primarily suited for earthmoving bucket pins, ball, roller and plain bearings under high load.
Specifically formulated for rubber to rubber lubrication where any effects such as hardening or swelling of the rubber must be avoided. It therefore can be used on automotive hydraulic brake and clutch components where compatibility with natural rubber and SBR seals are involved. It may also be used to assist the assembly of natural and synthetic rubber components for automotive brakes or clutch systems and suspension units.
Multipurpose extreme pressure greases displaying both high melting point and water resistant characteristics.
Suitable for plain roller and ball bearings and chassis lubrication.
General automotive, industrial and marine applications.
These greases have been formulated with additives that provide good film strength under medium to high loads.
SPHEEROL EPL 0 (REPLACES EPL 0)
Grease filled gear boxes.
SPHEEROL EPL 2 (REPLACES EPL 2)
Multipurpose extreme pressure lithium based grease displaying high wear resistant characteristics.
Suitable for plain and roller bearings over a wide variety of applications. Also suitable for chassis lubrication.
SPHEEROL EPL 0
SPHEEROL EPL 2
Non-melting bentone clay based grease suitable for very high temperature applications up to 200°C.
Ideal for front wheel bearings in cars with disc brakes operating at very high temperatures.
Castrol Spheerol BTX 2 Grease (previously called BTX Grease) is a high performance grease developed for use in a wide range of mining and industrial applications.
Spheerol BTX Grease uses a unique combination of extreme pressure and antiwear agents, corrosion and oxidation inhibitors in a lithium complex base.
Spheerol BTX Grease draws on field trial experience in a number of severely heavy duty applications includingmotorsport.
The formulation is engineered to provide outstanding protection of ball and rolling bearings in high speed and load applications. It is also suitable for general chassis greasing, ball joints, constant velocity joints and other sliding surfaces and plain bearing lubrication. It is also used in applications like Jack shafts, Bucket pins abd Vibrating shafts.
Continuous Operating Temperature Range: -35°C to 175°C
Intermittent Operating Temperature Range: -40°C to 200°C
Spheerol SX 2 is a complex calcium sulphonate grease providing superior performance benefits in the highly aggressive conditions experienced in the marine environment.
Spheerol SX 2 is a true multipurpose ship machinery lubricant, specifically developed to provide enhanced lubrication and protection for bearings, wire ropes and open gears usually found in marine environments.
Spheerol SX 2 is suitable for most journal bearings, wire ropes and open gears used in marine deck equipment and can be considered for roller, ball and needle bearings generally used in engine room equipment.
In addition to the excellent protection provided for wire ropes and open gears, Spheerol SX 2 is also suitable for use on awide range of deck equipment where it will protect and lubricate hinges, turnbuckles, screws, fair leads etc.
For multipurpose applications a grease gun may be used with Spheerol SX 2. Alternatively traditional application methods can be used for wire ropes and open gears. (Please see also "Additional Information").
